Late For Hatters Tea Cocktail Glass of Bubbly

“Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!”

We must move with haste, my new friend, we’re running late, oh so late for Hatters Tea Party, he shall not be happy with us, if you don’t move now we shall be late!

We’ve been given the invitation of the century, to one of Hatters Tea Parties, and we shan’t keep our host waiting, so upon our arrival let’s create a Glass of Bubbly Cocktail for our bigger-than-life host, using a ravishing bottle of Champagne and a delightful bottle of Bramble, along with some creamy squirty cream!

The Champagne – Celebrity’s Champagne

Founded in 2013 by Christophe Kuo, on the picturesque island of Taiwan, off the coast of China and Hong Kong.

Celebrity’s Champagne imports Champagne from France to Taiwan, they specialize in the smaller French growers, looking for that unique taste, they help the Taiwanese people experience more of what Champagne has to offer at an affordable price in a lovely box with an elegant label.

Celebrity’s Motto: The real taste of Champagne.

Celebrity’s Champagne – My Girl Champagne – Tasting Notes

Aroma – “Lovely expressive aroma, delivering everything you could want from a Champagne, with a creamy presence joining you along the entire journey, with zesty lemon, yellow fruits, yeasty characters, pastry, glazed icing sugar pastry, croissants, glazed peach/apricot, with notes of vanilla ice cream on the aroma.”

Flavour – “Elegant, just like the lady on the label, smooth on the palate with sweet and light citrus, hints of apricot and peach, yeasty, croissants and pastry, very similar to the aroma, with freshly baked glazed icing sugar pastries and creamy at the close/length.”

The Bramble – The Norfolk Selection

The English Whisky Co started in December 2006, with them crafting their first 29 barrels of English Whisky and by August 2007 they opened to the public with a visitor centre, whisky shop and tours.

Since the original distillations back in 2006, thousands of casks have been filled, many of which are still maturing in their warehouses.

After a decade on the market, in 2018, The English Whisky Co decided to retire their Bramble Liqueur, but it’s back, in a new suit and a tweak to the original recipe.

The Norfolk Bramble – Tasting Notes – “Rich with hand-crushed blackberries and wild red, purple and dark pink floral on the aroma, the palate is much of the same with sweet blackberry crumble, blackberry tart and hints of vanilla.”

“My father James Nelstrop’s sole ambition was to produce the very finest single malt whisky. This is still the only goal of The English Whisky Co”

Late For Hatters Tea Party Cocktail Tasting Notes

Aroma – “Seaweed and cream, a surprisingly nice mix, smooth cream and a touch of saline with the seaweed on the aroma.”

Flavour – “The flavours are initially creamy, with a hint of seaweed, then the Cocktail comes through the snowy cream with heavenly blackberry crumble, tart and pastries, the Champagne enhances the blackberry crumble flavours from the Bramble, while at the same time adding a few more delicious pastries to the mix, and this is all topped with our sweet and smooth cream.”
